Agency Agent

Screened at venues around Cambridge as part of Art Language Location festival 2015. Shown during Hidden Features festival (Edinburgh)

Linguistically what do we mean by agency? In questioning the semantics, are paradoxical cultural/ social systems revealed? This is a performative video that encourages the audience into a conversation with the screen. As text sweeps and stutters across the monitor, your act of viewing is used to explore what agency might mean. Borrowing elements from advertising language, combining percussive beats with imagined ambient sounds, you are asked to explore the implications of ‘agency’ outside of this viewing experience.
